Submissions are invited to the 5th International Conference on Educational Data Mining (EDM2012), to be held on 19-21 June 2012 in Chania, Crete, Greece. The EDM 2012 conference is organized under the auspices of the International Educational Data Mining Society.
The EDM 2012 conference is a leading international forum for high quality research that mines large data sets of educational data to answer educational research questions. These datasets may come from learning management systems, interactive learning environments, intelligent tutoring systems, or any system used in a learning context. EDM 2012 is a highly disciplinary conference that brings together researchers from computer science, machine learning and data mining, artificial intelligence in education, intelligent tutoring systems, education, learning sciences, psychometrics, statistics and cognitive psychology.
The theme of the EDM 2012 conference is “From Data to Information: Empowering Learning Environments and Settings”. We particularly solicit submissions that describe how EDM approaches transform the educational setting and empirical studies. EDM may require adaptation of existing or development of new approaches that build upon techniques from a combination of areas, including but not limited to statistics, psychometrics, machine learning, information retrieval, recommender systems and scientific computing. EDM 2012 will immediately follow the Eleventh International Conference on Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS 2012), 14-18 June 2012, at the same location. More information here.
